Hi Guys,

Just wanted to double check Exam 70-417 includes direct upgrade from MCSE 2003 to MCSA 2012 and then exams 413 and 414 to MCSE 2012.

or do i have to do all three exams 410,411,412 again for MCSA 2012

    I didn't realize this until earlier today, but 417 is an official upgrade from 2000, 2003, and 2008. That is crazy. I wish I would wouldn't have tried to so hard to stay up to date :)

    I also didn't realize that I would have the new MCSE: Messaging just by doing the 417 since I have the MCITP EMA on 2010.
